It's pretty simple, really.If the Warriors beat the Bucks on Saturday in Milwaukee they'll finishtheir five-game road trip at 3-2. If they lose, they'll return to theBay Area 2-3.

That's the difference between a good trip and a so-so trip.

Former Warrior Corey Maggette is coming off the bench for the Bucks,which is nothing new for him; he's done that before. But under ScottSkiles, Maggette's minutes are down.
Maggette is playing just 21 minutes per game, which would be the fewest number of minutes he's averaged in the past 10 years.

Don't forget what happened last year when the Warriors played inMilwaukee. Then-rookie point guard Brandon Jennings dropped 55 againstthe Warriors, including 29 in the third quarter and 45 in the secondhalf.

Saturday's game will conclude a stretch of five games in seven days forthe Warriors. They then come home for games against the Pistons onMonday and the Knicks next Friday.
